Julian Serrano: The Art of Las Vegas’ Most Famous Restaurant

"A lot of people don't know that I love to ride my bike in my off time," says Julian Serrano, Executive Chef at Picasso, a restaurant within Las Vegas' famous Bellagio Hotel.Chef Julian Serrano

Just as Lance Armstrong never aimed to be like other cyclists in his methods and training, Serrano, the leisurely rider and "cyclist" in the kitchen explains, "I try not to worry about what other restaurants are doing. I buy the best produce and ingredients I can find and we do the best that we can to create a fun and memorable experience for our guests. I would have to say my favorite dishes are my Huevos Estrellados, Stuffed Piquillo Peppers, Avocado Cannelloni with Salmon and Raspberry and Tuna Skewers."

"My restaurant has a good energy and it's very welcoming with open spaces. And tapas promote conversation, which helps keep the good energy. The food we serve here is all Spanish influence with several traditional and new tapas. My guests should definitely order the sangria or the Serrano cocktail. Both are signature drinks and are great complements to my food. Also, don't miss the Churros, Crema Catalana and the Santiago's cake." Spoken well by the gentleman who was awarded the AAA Five Diamond Award not once but 11 times. ¡Buen provecho!
